Home Medication Reviews

A Home Medication Review (HMR) is designed to maximise the benefit of your medications and minimise any medication-related problems. We currently offer this service in Bathurst and Lithgow.

Our pharmacists will meet with you at your home, or via video, to discuss your medications, including prescription and over-the-counter medications, vitamins and supplements. They can assist to:

  • Work through any concerns you have with your medications, including suspected adverse effects or inadequate response to current therapy

  • Provide advice regarding safe storage of medications, including checking for expired medications

  • Ensure that medications are taken in the most effective way, including timing of doses

  • Check and provide education on the use of devices like inhalers, injections and blood glucose meters

  • Answer any of your questions about medications, including brand changes and how they work for your medical conditions

  • Provide recommendations that will assist your GP to develop a Medication Management Plan with you

Once the HMR is conducted, our pharmacists will then send a detailed report to your GP.

Would I benefit from a Home Medication Review?

You would particularly benefit from a HMR if you:

  • Take more than five regular medications

  • Have recently been discharged from hospital with medication changes

  • Have concerns about your medications

  • Are taking medications that require close monitoring

How do I organise a Home Medications Review?

A HMR can only be conducted with a referral from your GP. The HMR can be completed by an Accredited Pharmacist of your choice.
